LAKES TO THE ATLANTIC. Congressman Simpson Propose! Joining •with Canada to Build a Bblp CanaL WASUINOTON, April e.—Representative Simpson, of Kansas, is preparing a , joint resolution proposing an interna- ' tional commission between the United , States and Canada with a view to co- j operation in a system of canals • and waterways closely connecting the great lakes with tho Atlantic ocean. Mr. Simpson, who sailed the lakes in his early days, proposes a cut from Georgian bay, on the east shore of Lake Huron, through to Lake On- j tario. This cut could be made by way ; of Lake Siracoe and other small lakes, ; so that the actual cut would not be over iOO miles. It would save 800 miles of the present route through the St Clair and Detroit rivers, the entire length , of Lake Erie and the Welland cajal. It would make almost a bee . line from the upper lakes to the St j Lawrence, and thence to the ocean, j It is also contemplated that joint ac- j tlon be taken on improving the upper St. Lawrence in order to open this lake ; and ocean route to Jho largest and most modern boats. The great grain regions of the far northwest would thus have a direct water route to tho ocean, In- . steud of a circuitous lake route to Buffalo and Iran sshipment there by rail to the seaboard.

Refused to Leave Unless Passenger Coachec Were Furnished — The Whole City Up in Arms. THE REGIMENT FINALLY DEPARTS. OAKLAND, Cal., April 0.—After a night of excitement Oakland has finally (rot rid of the regiment of unemployed men which left, San Francisco, Wednesday, to join Coxey's army in its journey to" Washington, All night long every man, woman and child in the city was on the streets, the riot alarm was sounded, thu governor wa9 asked to call out the national g-uartls, extra police and deputy sheriffs were sworn in and artnod with rines, and preparations made for fighting of the bloodiest kind, because 040 unemployed and desperate men refused to leave the city. Only a rash word or an unlucky shot was required to precipitate a conflict which would have resulted in the extinction of this brunch of the industrial army, as the men who composed it were mostly unarmed and could have made but a leeble resistance to the officers and citizens. But the army consented to move peaceably when it wus seen that further resistance to the wild citizens of Oakland was useless, Wouldn't Rldo in Box Can. Last Wednesday about 000 unemployed men applied to Muyor Ellert, of San Francisco, for assistance in fretting across the bay at Oakland, where they expected to secure transportation on freight trains to the east. The mayor contributed $S5 and the regiment was sentover to Oakland. Upon arriving at Oakland the army found that the Southern Pacific railroad would not allow them to ride on its train, so they camped in the Mills Tabernacle and waited. The people of Oakland fed them and t'iOO was raised to pay their fare to Sacramento. Arrangements were made to have them start at 0 o'clock Friday night. The army marched to the Sixteenth street station to take the train, and the people of Oakland heaved a sigh of relief in getting rid of them so early. When, however, the army found that it was to be transported in box cars, the men rebelled and refused to leave unless passenger coaches were provided, so the army inarched back to the tabernacle. The authorities tri«d to secure passenger coaches, but the railway officials refused to furnish them for the 8200 and all negotiations were declared off. Prepared to Ilrlve Them Out. Meanwhile the city officials received Information that among the leaders of the army was a man who had been interested in the Hayma-rket riots in Chicago. This information alarmed them, and it was decided to get rid ol the army immediately at any cost, avoiding bloodshed if possible. Mayor Pardeo called a meeting of the-efflmcil and a plan of campaign was decided upon. Chief of Police Schaefer was ordered to drive the army out of the town by force, but as ho could only muster twenty-five men at that time he reported that his force was not large enough. The mayor then telegraphed to the governor at Sacramento to have the militia called out while the chief consulted with Sheriff McKillican, who agreed to swear in all necessary deputies in order to keep the peace. In the meantime Maj. Frank O'Brien, commanding the First battalion of the Fifth regiment, was summoned to the city hall and notified to prepare for action Maj. O'Brien at once repaired to the armory and his officers wore summoned to duty. He notified the police that he would be ready to report lor duty with two companies the moment he received word from the governor or adjutant general. Under the direction of Maj. O'Brien a Gatling gun was also placed in front of thu cito hall and loaded for action. The gun was placed in charge of militia men, with instructions to take no action until word was receivud from the major in command. Scenes of Excitement. At midnight the mayor, Sheriff McKillican and Chief Sehaefer held a consultation and it was decided to drive the industrial arnny out of the city at 3 o'clock in tho morning. The excitement at the city hall was now running high. The officers armed themselves with pistols, clubs Winchester rifles, etc. Sergt Fletcher orcani-/.ed the men into companies so us to be ready at a moment's notice. At 12-30 o'clock no word had been received from Sacramento and the militia were waiting orders to move and assist the police. The mayor and council were still at the city hall and notified the chief of police and the sheriff to make a final request of Superintendent Wilder for passenger cars. Wilder refused and final: preparations for action^re commenced. Oakland's police force consists 1 t>t fifty men and they were all on diity. Tfc« Tociln founded. At 2 o'clock a 'general alarm was .ounded on the fire bells and th. citizeni hastened to the city hall. There about 1.800 were .worn ina. deputy •hertft »»«» »•» » m *J- flti. were armed. Then the city's wrces marched to tho tabernacle, where the army was peacefully slumbering. Tho men were awakened and ordered to move out They refused and things looked ominous. Consultations were held on both sides. Arrested the Loader. Finally the police arrested Leader Kelly and several of hismenand penned the rest of them up in a corner of the tabernacle. They still refused to move unless their leader was returned to them, and the police held another consultation. At last they decided to release him, and Kelly was carried back on the shoulders of his men amid enthusiastic cheers. He made a speech to his followers counseling moderation and asked them to comply with the demands of the people of Oakland. Left Ui« Town. In tho meantime arrangements had been made with the Southern Pacific for eight box cars. Acting under orders the industrials agreed to submit peacefully, and at R:l!0 a. m. formed a line and, escorted by 200 armed police and citizens, marched to Sixteenth street station, where they entered the box curs and shortly after 4 o'clock the train pulled out for Sacramento. Oakland heaved another big sigh of relief and went back to bed. At Sacramento the army will bo reenfovced by about BOO men, and unless tlie railroad company agrees to ta-ltn tho whole lot across the country a riot is almost certain to occur. Kryu'd M«n Mo«o from St. touli. ST. Louis, April 0.—Under the orders of the chief of police of East St. Louis "Gen." Frye's industrial army has taken another very short step toward Washington, Satisfied that the railroads would not voluntarily transport the travelers, Chief Walsh ordered Gen. Frye to get his men beyond the city limits as soon after 8 o'clock as possible. Fyre accepted the situation and did so. Tho men are practically without food and the eastbound roads refuse to move them further both on their own account and because of instructions recelrod from eastern cities not to bring the wander- erk into their limits. The lack of food for the men increases as the citizens learn of their unwillingness to accept the offer of the East St Louis water board of $1.50 per day for one y«»r for 300 men to lay pipes, and unless something new develops Frye may put into effect a threat made Friday to surrender his arm3 r to the East St Louis police as vagrants and thus compel the city to care for the industrials. Many Recruits lit Homestead. HOMESTEAD, Pa., April 8.—Tho possibilities were wide open hero Friday night that Homesteaders might become excited and throng to join the commonweal, for the frequent references of Coxey and Browne in their speeches reopened the old sores, While it is at this time impossible to accurately estimate the number of recruits from this place, a conservative opinion gives it as fifty. These men will join the army at Bull's Run, 4 miles above here, and at other adjoining points, preferring not to appear in the line of marchers as they pass through the main thoroughfares en route to McKeesport The total number of recruits signed Thursday was 248. A fifth commune h»s been organized, named Pittsburgh commune. AT IT AGAIN.

Mr. Eeed inquired whether a rollcall w\s in progress. The speaker answered in the affirmative and Mr. Reed remarked in his most tantalizing manner that he believed it was customary for the chair to refuse permission for the interruption of a rollcall. "The gentleman from Maine objects," announced the speaker. "1 have not objected," retorted Mr. Reed. "I merely drew attention to chair's mode of dealing with these cases." .•'..„ "The gentleman from Mai no objects," reiterated the speaker. •,I did not object," persisted Mr. Eeed; "I merely-" "The gentleman cannot put lumseit in tliftt attitude," interrupted the speaker. i'l was merely appealing to the record," urged Mr. Eeed. "I am in the record on this question." "Tho chair is in the record also,' thundered the speaker, punctuating his words with powerful raps of tho gavel "The gentleman cannot put himself in such an attitude and shirk responsibility," and he went on pounding the desk as he ordered the clerk logo ahead with the rollcall. Mr. Beeo sat down, still protesting 1 , and the regular order proceeded. !
